He will become a consultant and work through the end of the year. He described the move as “early retirement” in a video with WSB radio morning news anchor Scott Slade Thursday. CaveatsStronger and/or more traditional El Nino episode might set up a much milder pattern in northern tier U.S. Potential is there for an extremely rough mid-January through mid-March period for areas east of the Rocky Mountains. No part of the U.S. is favored to have below-average temperatures. Mid-Atlantic all have equal chances for below-, near- or above-average temperatures.
I learned a lot, and part of the problem is that we, the general public, are kept in the dark on most of this kind of information. Learning about the ‘100 mile south of the coast’ track was great. The more we know, the more we understand, the more we won’t have massive disappointment when just a few people are so wrong. The days of reporting the high and low temps of the day, and %chance of precip need to be over. Kirk Mellish, longtime meteorologist at Cox Media Group news/talk WSB/WSBB-FM Atlanta, plans to retire at the end of the month after more than 30 years with the station. He will be succeeded in the role by Christina Edwards and will remain with the station as a consultant through the end of the year.
Usually it’s the CAD/wedge effect totally screwing up the models, but not this time. Our proximity and positioning with regards to the Appalachians truly makes our climate unique. Starting in late July, Meteorologist Christina Edwards will join the WSB Radio team, returning to Atlanta after six years of serving the Tennessee Valley at WHNT News 19.
For days and even hours before the storm hit, his prediction was light rain and that was all, citing his own “models.” He went on to state this was his hardest forecast in 10 years. Most other meteorologists had forecast light snow and a gradual warming overnight to light rain. This is the time of year that winter outlooks are published by many different climatologists, meteorologists, and others (we are not even going to talk about the Farmers’ Almanacs, which are not scientific forecasts). One of the meteorologists I like to follow is Kirk Mellish of WSB in Atlanta. I have found he takes the time to dissect several different weather patterns to see how they might interact in producing the climate for this upcoming winter.
As for me, at this point I see a 3-4 month average that featurestemperature below-normalandrainfall above-normal, withabove-normal oddsfor snow and/or ice. I would favor January-March for the bulk of winter weather despite many analogs saying it starts in November or December. The KirkMellish blog is a fun, light, and witty take on the real estate industry that is entertaining for those who aren’t quite aware of the way it’s regulated. Fog, drizzle, and showers return to parts of eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa today through 1pm Saturday. Northeast Nebraska could stay dry with light rainfall amounts farther south from trace-0.25″. Cooler highs in the 60’s and 70’s through the weekend. He had the nerve to state the weather had turned out exactly as he predicted, by citing the light rain during the morning rush hour.
He posted his detailed outlook today, and you can find it here. Not much different than the Climate Prediction Center forecast but with a little more nuance. If you have others you like to follow, send me an email and I will take a look.
Mellish is said to be the first radio-only, full-time meteorologist in the country. WSB Radio meteorologist Kirk Mellish wrote in his weather blog that he expects temps to be 96 to 101 Friday through Monday in metro Atlanta in what he called possibly which factor does not impact the complexity of an incident? the hottest stretch of weather in five years. TemperaturesWarmer-than-normal conditions are anticipated across much of the northern and western U.S., with the greatest likelihood in Alaska and from the Pacific Northwest to the Northern Plains.
With weather models right now only consistent in being inconsistent, WSB Meteorologist Kirk Mellish says we should check his blog and forecast more often in this changeable pattern over the next few weeks. KirkMellish is more of a funny and entertaining than informative so there are plenty of other blogs with more valuable content that I would recommend to you. When I was looking for a real estate blog I went to many others before I found KirkMellish and was pleased with the results.
Drier-than-average conditions are most likely in parts of the northern Rockies and Northern Plains, as well as in the Great Lakes and northern Ohio Valley. Radio Ink is a radio-industry trade publication that is published 12 times a year for the radio management sector of the radio broadcasting industry. Mellish, a 59-year-old Kennesaw resident, will officially retire at the end of July.
